Today I have yet another beautiful tester version of the Carriers Conquest bag to share with you. This one is by Daryl of Patchouli Moon Studio. Daryl has been a long time tester and good friend of mine for a while now and sadly just recently lost her mom (I’ve been thinking of you the whole time Daryl)….so she ran a little late getting her tester bag done….Personally I find it amazing she was able to complete it at all, let alone so beautifully! …… So rather than add it to the tester blog post last minute, I thought it would be FUN and also cheer her up just a teeny little, to showcase her work in a blog post all her own!
I didn’t tell her I was going to do this so she has probably been thinking I just forgot to add her bag to my tester post but really…..look at her bag….whom could forget this:
Amazing! I LOVE your bag Daryl! Isn’t the fabric just GORGEOUS and so cheery? Daryl received this fabric as a birthday gift from a good friend.
When making her cord pulls at the sides, Daryl used buttons instead of rivets and added beads to the ends of the cords. COOL!
Daryl also makes her own zipper pulls with beads. I just love this little ‘Hand Made’ hand bead:
Here is a top view of Daryl’s bag:
Filled with goodies:
Here’s another of Daryl’s handmade zipper pulls:
This bag is great for showcasing bigger prints or special fabrics:
